ALER Survey - Cape Verde

ALER organized in partnerships with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services of Sotavento (CCISS) a workshop under the motto "Private Sector Involvement in Renewable Energy in Cape Verde: Opportunities and challenges", on 14th October, at the Centre of Renewable Energy and Industrial Maintenance (CERMI) in Cidade da Praia, Cape Verde.


The workshop aimed to present the survey results "Prospects of Renewable Energy Development in Cape Verde" developed by ALER for measuring renewable sector stakeholders' needs and expectations in Cape Verde, especially the private sector.

It should be pointed out that, among the data collected, the regulatory framework, funding and the consumers' purchasing power are considered the main barriers to renewable energy implementation and development in Cape Verde.

ALER is preparing an evaluation report including results and recommendations for the next government.
